How do I help my child be successful in school?
Check your students backpack nightly for homework. Read with your child nightly and sign the logs.
Attend Parent Teacher Conferences (on school calendar).
Attend Open House on August 28, 2019 (all day).
Email teacher with concerns.
How frequently should I expect to hear updates about how my child is doing?
Teachers will contact parents on a needs based time frame. Parents can set up appointments, email or communicate through written documents with their teacher.
Unless otherwise indicated a report card will be sent out quarterly (dates listed on district calendar).
If I email with a question or concern, how quickly should I expect to hear back?
Most teachers are prompt at getting back to parents. If the teacher does not respond within a day, calling and leaving a message for the teacher is suggested.
